Bad Bosses and Burning Books
As the Holy Church anticipates in the festival of the Holy Cross, the
lessons for this Sunday deal with avoiding participation with evil by
changing "an eye for an eye" to "turn the other cheek." Fr John Brian brings the Gospel (Matthew 5:38-48) into focus by talking about "Bad Bosses" and "Burning Books" and the basics of living the Christian life and doing good in this world. The other readings for the day are mentioned: 1 Peter 2:1-5; 1 Corinthians 3:16-23 This sermon lesson uses the readings and services appointed from the Malankara Syrian lectionary and was given on Sunday, September 12, 2010 - LISTEN ONLINE HERE:
